Glossy Black-Cockatoo Birding day is on 19th May 2019 organised by Tweed Shire Council’s Marama Hopkins and local ecologist, Kim Stephan.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is offering a FREE workshop this Sunday 5th May, 10.30am including lunch.
The workshop will prepare you for the Birding Day. You will get a chance to view the Glossy Black Cockatoos. This is a citizen science based project and ideal for people who are interested in birding or birds to help monitor the species in the Tweed Shire. This will also help raise community interest in this threatened species. There are 25 places available.
